Iles-de-Boucherville National Park expansion project


Located between Montreal and Boucherville, the Tailhandier Flats Archipelago is a federal territory of approximately 2 km2, bordering the north of the Îles-de-Boucherville National Park. The Quebec Chapter of the Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society (CPAWS Quebec) and the Friends of the Îles-de-Boucherville National Park are asking the Canadian Federal Government to cede this natural environment to the Government of Quebec to be annexed to the national park. This would consolidate an important nature park for the citizens of the Greater Montreal area and facilitate the management of the ecological integrity of the sites.

2017 is the unique opportunity to concretize this action while Montreal celebrates its 375th anniversary along with its neighbor Boucherville, celebrating its 350th anniversary. Canada, which is celebrating its 150th anniversary this year, would offer on this occasion a link between the two municipalities as a present for the future to its citizens.

CPAWS Quebec and the Friends of the Îles-de-Boucherville National Park invite you to sign the petition to support the Iles-de-Boucherville National Park expansion project, and to share it around you!
